Based on the experiences of four equating studies conducted by the Austin (Texas) Independent School District, a practical "cookbook" approach to test equating is presented. Three types of equating procedures are discussed: choosing a cutoff score on a new instrument, predicting Y from X, and symmetric equating of X and Y. (BW)
